Rich Franklin feels like he's 'last of the Mohicans' in UFC, wants another shot at Anderson Silva   [View Full Version]
MMAcca » Posted 4/30/07 3:11:00PM

In a sport that had grown so much in really only a few years, Rich Franklin will add yet another first to his career when he headlines the first UFC show in China on Saturday.

Franklin (29-6), headlined the first live television event in the United States, and also headlined the company's first shows in places like Ireland, Northern Ireland, Germany and Western Canada. He faces the sport's most unorthodox stand-up specialist, Cung Le (8-2), in the main event at the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Resort in Macau.

it has been 5 years since their last fight. I doubt he'd win, but he'll last longer than the previous 2 times. Plus it gives Silva another fighter to retire

Maybe a #1 contender fight next summer to see who faces Weidman in his first title defense.

Holy shit what if Franklyn beat Weidman and became MW champ

That would be one of the most unlikely happenings in UFC history. I'm down, lets get this bitch rolling!

Edit: also if Weidman becomes champ we could see Shields Weidman in one of the most tehnical displays in MMA

I like franklin I really do but he isn't going to beat anderson UNLESS he atleast tries something else. Him thinking he can outstrike Anderson is a pipe dream. It's not happening. Personally if I were him I would get the best wrestler and bjj practitioner I could find and try and hang with them on the ground for as long as possible to build up the stamina needed to execute a strategy with wrestling as the base. At the same time use the wrestler to get the best at possible at setting up shots.


We'll see what happens

I feel like Franklin's best chance lies in the Thai clinch.

Anderson always gets easily layed on in the clinch. I'll support 5 rounds of wall and stall.

The first two fights where anderson putt a full plumb on, yeah.

I also saw Yushin lay on him in the clinch doing virtually nothing. Even Bonnar layed on him. I suppose I should have said double underhooks or fence clinching, but I thought wall and stall was good enough.

Weidman is the perfect style match for Franklin.







(Edit. Franklin would kick his ass)
